With ornate Victorian sculptures, sprawling trees, and well-maintained walking lanes, it can be easy to forget that Brompton Cemetery serves primarily as a burial ground. Part of London's Magnificent Seven--a group of cemeteries established in the mid-19th century to alleviate overcrowding on the grounds of city churches--this cemetery today is a recreational space under management of The Royal Parks. The garden scenery has earned the cemetery cameos in numerous films, and you're likely to encounter numerous locals enjoying it on a stroll or bike ride. To learn more about the cemetery's history, consider taking a Sunday-afternoon tour offered by The Friends of Brompton Cemetery, a local organization that helps maintain the 16 hectare (39 acre) grounds.

One of the Magnificent Seven. Brilliant Cemetery and park. It welcomes kids and grown up kids for a walk. There are some walking tours which are brilliant. It is a little heaven in the middle of the city madness. Nice coffee shop at the entrance. Next to West Brompton tube station or a 10 minute walk from Fulham Broadway District line station.
Wild and mysterious are two great words used to describe this place. It’s traditionally beautiful but also left to nature in parts. Has some mysterious tombs ( one of which an apparent time machine ). Great paths and well maintained where it needs to be with long grass in others. Good for wild life and a great place to come for a goth drink 😂 Peaceful and a good place to pick blackberries. And good to walk through as a short cut as well.
